Perhaps no model defines Nissan’s sporting heritage as well as the 370Z. This two-seat coupe or convertible combines an aggressive engine with rear-wheel drive to deliver excitement in a tidy package, while the interior is comfortable with controls that benefit the driver.
What's New for 2019
Following an extensive update in 2018, the 2019 Nissan 370Z returns with modest changes. While the price hasn't changed, Nissan consolidated the Touring and Sport Tech trims into a new Sport Touring model and added a standard auto-dimming rearview mirror to the rearview monitor. Finally, the 370Z Heritage Edition (based on the standard trim only) now comes with three color choices: Magnetic Black, Pearl White, and Deep Blue Pearl. Each Heritage Edition model has yellow interior trim and custom graphics.
Choosing Your Nissan 370Z
Under the hood of the 2019 Nissan 370Z is the familiar 3.7-liter V6 engine with 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Its power travels to the rear wheels by means of a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic transmission. The coupe is available in base 370Z, Sport, Sport Touring, and NISMO trims. If a convertible is more to your liking, there are three 370Z Roadster models for your consideration: base Roadster, Touring, and Sport Touring.
Enthusiasts preferring optimum performance also have the NISMO edition to consider. This one comes with a specially-tuned suspension system, a NISMO body kit, and performance tweaks. These tweaks yield an increase in overall performance to the tune of 350 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque. Both transmission choices are available with the NISMO.
As for packages, every trim except the base model is configured as equipped. Only the base model offers a package: the aforemention Heritage Edition Package.
While the new Sport Touring trim combines the best from two previous trims, the 370Z Sport is a great place to begin and end your search if you’re considering the coupe. The 2019 Nissan 370Z delivers with performance and style, but many competing models offer a superior ride and handling, as well as expanded comfort and driver-assist features. It has been many years since Nissan's presented an all-new “Z” and it shows – one can't come soon enough.
